Who Will Reign Supreme?

NRL Season Preview
All 16 teams battle it out in 2015 for the Provan-Summons Trophy.

Can South Sydney be the first team to win back-to-back trophies in almost two decades? Will the Cowboys finally break the curse and lift the Provan-Summons Trophy? Or will a dark horse come through the ranks and steal the title out from everyone’s noses? As the 2015 NRL season quickly approaches, TattsBet takes a look at some of the teams fighting for premiership glory.

South Sydney Rabbitohs


Key Player: Greg Inglis - If GI can fire week in week out, the Bunnies will be hard to stop again in 2015.

Premiership Price:

Top 4 Price:


The Rabbitohs finally ended a 43-year drought in 2014, winning the NRL Grand Final. Leading into the premiership defence, they recently captured another title, the Auckland Nines. With a few Bunnies in career-best form (Greg Inglis and Andrew Reynolds come to mind), Souths are sure finish the 2015 season near the top, and will have a fair crack at successive NRL titles.

Sydney Roosters


Key Player: Boyd Cordner - with so much potential, it is time for the NSW and Test representative to step up and prove his worth for his club.

Premiership Price:
 

Top 4 Price:

The 2013 champions finished with the Minor Premiership at the end of last season, but fell short when they went going down Souths in the Preliminary Finals. Halfback Mitchell Pearce really hit his straps at the back end of 2014 and looks set the lead from the front after being named co-captain alongside reformed hooker Jake Friend.

North Queensland Cowboys


Key Player: Johnathan Thurston – the best player in the world at the moment is the cornerstone of the Cowboys success. If he plays well, North Queensland plays well.

Premiership Price:


Top 4 Price:

For the third straight year, the Cowboys were knocked out of the competition in controversial fashion. If they hope to win their maiden title in 2015, they need to ensure that one decision won’t make or break their season. Johnathan Thurston has had his best pre-season to date and, if it’s possible, JT looks sharper than ever!

Brisbane Broncos


Key Player: Ben Hunt – the Broncos halfback had a standout year in 2014, named the 18th man for Queensland before gaining a bench spot for the Kangaroos in the Four Nations.

Premiership Price:


Top 4 Price:

The Broncos welcome back Wayne Bennet to Red Hill, and the 30-year coaching veteran has brought some talent with him. The recruitment of former premiership winner and Queensland winger Darius Boyd (injured Achilles) didn’t turn out like he would have hoped, but with Anthony Milford, Adam Blair and Mitch Garbutt all heading north of the border, Brisbane fans can still be confident heading into 2015.

Manly Sea Eagles


Key Player: Kieran Foran – Arguably the toughest player in league, pound for pound, Foran’s running game is what Manly work off. So if he is running the ball, the Sea Eagles are moving forward.

Premiership Price:


Top 4 Price:

The Silvertails still have one of the most talented rosters in the competition, and if they can avoid off-field distractions, can push for a third Premiership in eight years. The signing of forwards Feleti Mateo and Willie Mason will add some skill and power to the pack, allowing halves Daly Cherry-Evans and Kieran Foran to work their magic out the back.

New Zealand Warriors


Key Player: Ryan Hoffman – while halfback Shaun Johnson is the general, the hard-working Hoffman will no doubt be the major, leading the forwards into battle week in week out.

Premiership Price:


Top 4 Price:

The Warriors have the skill to win the Provan-Summons trophy, but what they lack is consistency. The signing of premiership-winning backrower Ryan Hoffman was a huge coup for New Zealand, and if he can continue his impressive 2014 form, they can finish towards the top of the NRL ladder.



Cronulla Sharks NRL Logo

Cronulla Sharks


Key Player: Andrew Fifita – it no surprise the Sharks played their best footy when he was on the field. If the Origin prop can stay fit and find some form, Cronulla fans are sure to excited come September.

Premiership Price:


Top 4 Price:

The Sharks are coming off a tumultuous period, but showed very promising signs at this year’s Auckland Nines tournament, losing a nail-biting Grand Final to South Sydney. The signing of Ben Barba has many Cronulla faithful torn, but if he can recapture his 2012 form, and captain Paul Gallen puts last season behind him, the Sharks can well make a play for a maiden NRL Premiership.
